Dalton, GA, known as the "Carpet Capital of the World," will soon be home to a waste-to-oil facility that will employ plastic from old carpets for recovery into high-grade synthetic crude oil. The Dalton-Whitfield Joint Development Authority has approved a resolution to issue $13 million in revenue bonds for Acworth-based Clean Energy Conversions which will build its facility at the Dalton-Whitfield Solid Waste Authority landfill. Work on the 15-20 thousand square-foot facility is scheduled to begin in the summer of 2012 with operations beginning in early 2013. Brett Kencairn, president of Colorado-based Community Energy Systems, said placing the facility in Dalton makes sense because of the carpet industry and the waste it produces. Community Energy Systems owns Clean Energy Conversions.
